Toscotec will supply several TT SteelDryer cylinders for two paper machines at the facilities of two confidential manufacturers in North America. The projects are slated for completion in 2022. By replacing the mills’ existing cast iron cans, the new TT SteelDryers will boost the drying capacity of the paper machines and lead to a significant production increase.
The steel dryers are custom sized, which allows for an easy replacement of the old cylinders maintaining the same overall dimensions of the dryer section and avoiding the costly substitution of the machine frame, housings, bearings and steam equipment. Finally, Toscotec’s steel dryer cylinders will keep the same total face length of the existing dryers while allowing the enlargement of the paper width of the machine.
Fabrizio Charrier, Sales Manager of Toscotec’s Paper & Board division, says: “Toscotec continues to grow in the North American market that is clearly moving towards more energy efficient solutions, and the upgrade of existing equipment with state-of-the-art technology such as TT SteelDryers.”
Toscotec strengthens its position as supplier of steel dryer cylinders, which deliver significantly higher performances than cast iron cans. Building on its substantial expertise in customizing the design of TT SteelDryers to the specific needs of the mill, Toscotec delivers tailor-made technology designed to achieve the highest possible production capacity and energy efficiency.
